The Surprising Trick That May Boost A Low Sex Drive

If you've found that you have lost interest in sex, know that this is not uncommon. According to Medical News Today, a person's sex drive can ebb and flow throughout their life. There is no universal standard for what a "normal" sex drive looks like, as a person's libido is entirely unique to them, per Better Health Channel.

Low libido can affect you at any time throughout your life, and there are many reasons behind it, per Medical News Today. Stress, low energy, mental health problems, and too little or too much exercise can deflate your sex drive, according to Better Health Channel. Changes in your diet, relationship problems, hormonal imbalances, and certain medications can also cause your desire to take a plunge (via Bustle).

While a dip in your sex drive is not uncommon, it is a cause for concern if it is creating stress in your life or relationship (via Medical News Today). While there are many things you can do to boost your libido, there is one avenue in particular that you may not have thought of.

How acupuncture can boost sex drive

It's a good idea to check in with your doctor regarding your decreased sex drive so you can pinpoint what may be behind your low libido (via Everday Health). While your doctor may prescribe medication or lifestyle changes, you may want to consider asking about acupuncture.

According to the Mayo Clinic, acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that involves sticking very small needles into specific points around your body to help unblock any stagnant energy, creating a healthy flow throughout your system. Gynecologist Dr. Anita Sadaty explained to Everday Health, "Acupuncture is an amazing technique for reducing and balancing stress hormone levels, which in turn, impact state of mind, relaxation, and, therefore, desire."

MindBodyGreen reports that during your sessions with an acupuncturist, they will insert the needles with a focus on certain energy points along the body, perhaps around your heart, liver, or kidneys. Your acupuncturist may suggest a series of sessions, perhaps once a week for a month, to maximize the benefits of acupuncture and boost your libido by creating a healthy, balanced flow of energy throughout your body.
